So with the Seibu Lions taking the Nippon Series Championship, the stage is now set for the Asia Series. Here is the current bracket layout:

November 13

Game 1 @ 12:00
Touitsu 7-Eleven Lions (Taipei - CPBL) vs Tenshin Lions (China - CBA)

Game 2 @ 18:00
SK Wyverns (Korea - KBO) vs Seibu Lions (Japan - NPB)

November 14

Game 3 @ 12:00
Tenshin Lions (China - CBA) vs SK Wyverns (Korea - KBO)

Game 4 @ 18:00
Seibu Lions (Japan - NPB) vs Touitsu 7-Eleven Lions (Taipei - CPBL)

November 15

Game 5 @ 12:00
Tenshin Lions (China - CBA) vs Seibu Lions (Japan - NPB)

Game 6 @ 18:00
Touitsu 7-Eleven Lions (Taipei - CPBL) vs SK Wyverns (Korea - KBO)

November 16

Game 7 @ 14:00
Championship Game

Now that I'm seeing this list, I think the Seibu Lions were destined to make it to the Asia Series. That's right, three of the four teams are Lions!

    HA! Too bad Samsung out of the KBO didn’t make it, then all four teams could have been Lions!

    Actually, I think the Samsung Lions got to the preliminaries by eliminating the Lotte Giants (how’s that for another coincidence!) via a 3-game sweep, but the Doosan Bears managed to take the semi-finals by winning 4 out of 6. Of course, we know the outcome of the Championship Series: the SK Wyverns beat out the Dooson Bear 4 games to 1.
